The possible lineup of Ecuador that will look for the first victory in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay | Soccer | Sports


The Ecuadorian team rehearsed behind closed doors on Monday the strategy it will follow against the same team Uruguay in the first match they will play at home in these qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. La Tri is coming off a 1-0 loss against Argentina and should be a fresh light blue team beating Chile 3-1.

The line of three defenders seems to be untouched in formation, according to the statements of the technical director Félix Sánchez Bas in the press conference.

“The line of three that defends works, I think the concepts are clear. But more than the line of three, I believe that the defense block of the team is very important,” said Sánchez Bas.

“Depending on the game, the opponent, the available players, we can’t just play three center-backs or two; with extremes, without extremes; game of two ‘5’ or one, depending. “It’s an option,” he added.

Regarding the formation changes, the strategist commented that “some changes will be tried,” but clarified that “not because of the lack of performance in the previous game but to focus on the next game. Some new- part is good to get the performance you want.

Among the possible changes is the entry of goalkeeper Alexander Domínguez instead of Hernán Galíndez and attacker Jhojan Julio for Gonzalo Plata. Both of them are very familiar with the Rodrigo Paz stadium field.

Dida, who had a problem before the match against Albiceleste in which he recovered, saved the last chance in the 3-0 victory over Costa Rica on the last FIFA matchday in June.

Likewise, the entry of right back Ángelo Preciado to the injury of José Hurtado.

In this way, the eleven that will be placed by Félix Sánchez Bas is Alexander Domínguez; Robert Arboleda, Félix Torres, William Pacho; Angelo Preciado, Pervis Estupiñán; Carlos Gruezo, José Cifuentes, Moisés Caicedo; Jhojan Julio and Enner Valencia.

The match between Tricolor and Celeste is scheduled for 4:00 pm (6:00 pm, Uruguay time) at the Rodrigo Paz Delgado stadium, in the city of Quito. (D)
